Spring Concert Sutton Town Hall

A huge well done to all the children that performed in the Spring Concert, Sunday 20th May, at Sutton Town Hall. Year 2 children wore animal costumes to sing an 'Animal Menagerie Theme with Mrs Mason, Violinists performed with Mrs Clemson and Cellists performed with Mr Smith. Some children from Whitehouse Common were also joined by children from Hollyfield School to perform an 'Old Time Music Hall Medley' with our Area choir and Mrs Mason. Everyone involved perfomed brilliantly and Miss Breeze and Mr Worth thought that all the children behaved really well backstage. Thank you to all the music staff involved and parents for your support.

A visit from the Lord Mayor!

This morning we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Lord Mayor. She came to school to present us with our International School Award and Quality Mark 4. Key Stage One children took part in a special assembly where children for Year One and Two performed a traditional English Ceildh Dance and sang a Spanish song.

50th Anniversary Tea Towels and Shopping Bags

50thWe are very pleased with the tea towels and bags which we had printed especially for the school's 50th Anniversary. There is a tea towel design for each year group in the school, including Nursery. Every child in the school completed a self-portrait, all of which have been printed onto their year group's tea towel, along with our special 50th Anniversary school logo. Mrs Juniper has already sold over half of these at the Summer Fayre and also with the help of Year 5 pupils at our 'Business Enterprise' shop in Sutton on Wednesday! She will be continuing to sell the tea towels, along with the canvas shopping bags, in the Library, before and after school, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday next week. Each item costs £3 and is a lovely memento of your children's time spent at Whitehouse Common School!

50th Anniversary Celebrations

On Friday 1st July Whitehouse Common Primary celebrated the 50th Anniversary of our school with a fun packed day of activities. Invited guests, including old staff, ex-pupils and other VIP's, were able to witness the burying of a time capsule, unveiling of a commemorative plaque and a wide range of spectacular performances from the children across the school.

The school unveiled a brand new art work produced to commemorate the anniversary of the school. Children from across the school photographed each other in poses to reflect the key characteristics of a child at Whitehouse Common. These were then turned into silhouettes and were painted by the children.

Throughout the day, lots of photographs were taken and the events were filmed. Mrs Edwards then spent some hours putting these photos and clips together to bring you the video you see below. Take a look - it's well worth watching!
